    I prefer "Functional" Bling. At least now I can see if the screws are backing out and if my oil is turning into a milk shake.:lol3

    OK, carry on then. :freaky

    They are not available to the public yet.:wink:

    Testing is on going, but is won't be cheap, unless I can get china to make them.:dunno

    When we install your Rekluse I'll see what kind of package deal I can do.:deal

    Sweet CJ. Nice work. Also, may sell a lot of them to the waterpump leaker crowd.
    You could become a zillionaire...

    I have faith in you bro'
    If (when) you fix this issue, you will automatically be inducted into the Hall Of Fame (HOF), with all of the honors and benefits normally bestowed upon those so honored. I, for one, will buy the drinks next time we meet.
    Hell, we may even carry you around the pub on our shoulders (just watch your head when going through doorways) :D

    Thanks guys,

    Here of some pics of me "testing" my current setup. I had just put on a set of ROX risers. I'm sure not the fastest, but I do have fun doing it. That's all that matters. If you don't enjoy it, why waist the time?

    This race was about 5 hrs from home. I rode there.

    I think they need a bigger tent?

    Our pit spot. Ride to the race, take off luggage, Race, than ride home.:ricky

    Zigman and I w/ our trophies. Great Race Dan.:thumb Glad you talked me into it.

    I did take off the luggage and highway pegs first.

    Thanks Wayne for all the help w/ this bike, ordering up parts and throwing back and forth ideas. You've got a great shop and crew.:clap http://www.petriemotorsports.com/

    Long live the 950. When the guy handing out trophies asked what possessed me to race a 950 in 9 miles of single track. I gave him a blank stare and told him "They said it was 'Ready to Race' when I bought it".

    They must have thought I screwed up when I put my CC size down. They left it blank.

    And yes that is only a 10mph average. Thank you very much. :)

    Way too much fun.:ricky

    Local News!

    Petries is having an Open House April 19. Anyone looking to swing a leg over a Demo 990, stop on by for some food and bikes. :thumb Maybe I'll see a few of you there. I've never ridden a 990 ADV yet, plus the 990 Super Duke maybe available.:ricky

    Lets hope the weather keeps warming up.

    CJ, I just read this entire thread....holy smokes, you've done it all with one bike. I'm starting to re-think my approach to bikes...and its your fault man...do I really need a Duke, a 530 and a big touring bike??
    Maybe a 950/990 is my cure for my illness...and you proved that you can race it too!!!
    See ya at Waynes on Saturday.
